  • 1/4 cup sugar


  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 egg yolks beaten
  • zest and juice of 5 key limes


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix sugar and graham cracker crumbs together then mix in melted butter. Press mixture into a nine-inch pie pan and bake for about 10 minutes.
  2. While the crust cools, mix filling ingredients together. Pour filling into cooled crust and bake for 15 minutes. Top will be firm but won't change color.
